>> this is something i think needs to be said. how can they continue to blame president obama for not keeping all of his promises from the republicans all agreed when he first became president to stop him every step of the way? when they agreed to not let him succeed, because he's a black man. they did not want to see a black president. >> gideon moore, go ahead, sir. >> i strongly disagree with that assertion. when he came into power, he had a tremendous majority in congress. filibuster-proof majority in the senate. and he chose not to work with republicans. at that time olympia snowe, susan collins, moderate republicans who worked traditionally with democrats of the past, he focused on getting the health care law passed through without considering the republican option. i think that poisoned the well for moving forward. i would strongly disagree in term of the fact he had plenty of chances, especially the first two years to deliver on the promises he made, he didn't. even during that period he wasn't working and chose not to work with republicans. >> next up is phil in hende

has a plant. president barack obama has the plant. tammy baldwin has no plans. >> we do know something about his brand new plan on medicare and that is that health costs in the federal employee health benefit program are increasing at a rate of 40% faster than traditional medicare. that gives you a sense. it is not a full score. but that is something we do know. that would not save us money. it would shift a huge burden to seniors. this idea that he never supported the voucher program, he ran ads in his primary sang out will be the 51st vote to pass the paul ryan budget which contains this plan. last summer, he stood on the stage and talked about his support for this plan. what have i done? i worked hard on the affordable care act that has significant sections on medicare. in that, we extended the solvency of medicare by 10 years. this is not the end of our work but it is a strong beginning. i was very involved in that. when tommy thompson ran medicare from 2001 until 2005, the program went nine years closer to bankruptcy under his watch. the medicare trustees said it would be insolven
